At its heart, compounding relies on a relationship triad between a patient, a doctor and a pharmacist. Until about 1950, almost all medications were prepared by a pharmacist according to the instructions of a physician in response to the specific needs of a particular patient.
Compounding goes back to this basic model, usually for 3 reasons:
Yes. Just as you can go into your doctor’s office to inquire about a medication advertised on TV, you can also request that your doctor write you a prescription to try a compounded medication.
Your doctor knows you and your medical history, but may be unaware of the many treatment options made possible through compounding. Bluejay Pharmacy is working hard to change this! You can help by talking to your doctor about your preferences. Encourage your doctor to contact one of Bluejay Pharmacy’s pharmacists to discuss active ingredients, novel dosage forms, or how to write a compounded prescription. We are also available for advice and recommendations. . Compounding pharmacy exists to enable you, your doctor and your pharmacist to all work together for your unique health and unique medication requirements. Compounding is not a one-size-fits-all approach.
Your doctor may have an ownership interest in a preferred pharmacy or simply be comfortable referring to a particular location. However, YOU have a CHOICE in pharmacies. Compounded medications, by definition, are not commercial products, so they can be created in any pharmacy with the materials and know-how to do so. Bluejay Pharmacy would love the opportunity to earn your trust and loyalty.
